This original and intact leather accoutrement set is a great example of an Confederate-used black bridle leather belt matched with an English-made leather belt holster.  Typical of the rigs worn by many Confederate enlistedmen during the war, the thick leather belt has an iron harness type roller buckle and clasp and measures 41” long x 1¼”.  Leather is still supple with moderate creasing, cracking and scuffing over the entire surface. Belt does suffer from moderate frayed stitching at the buckle / clasp area.  Opposite end of belt has field modified holes for the clasp. No markings or stampings on the belt.  The finely-crafted leather flap holster is also unmarked and fits a .36 caliber pistol or revolver.

In very good overall condition, the holster is constructed of thick black bridle leather and measures approximately 12” long when flap is closed. All stitching is strong and tight save for a 1” separated area at the top section of the holster. Holster body leather is smooth without any cracking, crazing or flaking. Back side retains a single belt loop secured with two copper rivets. Flap is completely missing the closure tab.  No brass finial.  Stitching perforations are evident on the flap surface. An integral component of a Southern cavalryman’s equipage, this type of leather belt and holster was also carried by many artillerymen, as well as officers, on campaign.  Holster body has an open plug.

This Confederate-used, English-made leather holster with its accompanying leather waist belt is in great original condition. The set would make a fine adder to any Confederate soldier display or Civil War leather collection.
